Are You Ready?! Another “AUTS” Contest!

I am a creature of habit. I can’t reach my arm two inches further in the opposite direction to throw these into the trash.

That being said, I’d like to share a picture with you all.

Test Strips


As many of you may already know – this picture is of a corner of my desk at work. As I’ve explained before, the trash can is simply too far away for me to throw these away on any regular basis. And with such a collection I simply had to run another contest.

I don’t discriminate between meters. If I have strips available for a particular meter, they will get used. You can see a One Touch Ultra Smart, a FreeStyle Flash, an Accu-Chek Compact, and there are two Accu-Chek Aviva’s you can’t see. I go through spurts where one type of strip will be better covered by insurance than the other. Being of limited financial resources, I have to go with what it cheapest. And yes, that actually is a bottle of Ketostix.

The foot? That’s my Kevin Garnett figure. I love that guy.

The Contest:

You know how it works – the first person to leave a comment in this post with the closest guess to the actual number of test strips will win a small “real world” prize!

Deadline is Sunday, December 10th, with the winner being announced on Monday the 11th. I must also have some way to e-mail you – no “anonymous” winners.

Game on!

And yes, Julia, I know. I just can’t help it.
